Margot Robbie Returns As Harley Quinn In New Promo For The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part


When you think about it, Margot Robbie has become just as synonymous with the character of Harley Quinn as Arleen Sorkin in very short order. While the latter set the standard for the Clown Princess of Crime’s voice on Batman: The Animated Series back in the day, Robbie’s look in the live action Suicide Squad flick remains one of the most frequently seen cosplays at conventions and Halloween parties. Needless to say, the mark has been made.

To my surprise, Margot’s first reprisal of the role will actually come via The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. At first, I wasn’t so sure it was her voice I was hearing in the new promo found at the top of this article, but I did some checking around and her involvement has indeed been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, so there you go.

Depending on whom you may ask, this return is either a positive or a negative. If you dug Suicide Squad, then you have much reason to celebrate. But if you liked what Jenny Slate had to offer in The LEGO Batman Movie, then I imagine you may be somewhat saddened by her not being invited back.

Either way, it does make sense for Harley to be in the mix. After all, not only has the Caped Crusader himself largely factored into the lucrative LEGO film franchise, but the Justice League will also show up in full effect for the highly anticipated sequel.

I guess we’ll see how it all works out when The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part arrives in theaters on February 8th. As for Margot Robbie’s next live action appearance in a DC flick, that’ll come on February 7th, 2020 when Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) storms cinemas.
